Tuition fees 2024/25

Paying the tuition fee 2024/25

Living costs 2024/25

These estimates are based on research of the study and living costs by centre of expertise Budget and Financial Well-being, a research group linked to the Bachelor programme in social work of Thomas More. This information is provided to ensure that you are fully aware of the likely costs of your study. Therefore we advise you to consider them very carefully.

These are the likely living costs (accommodation, food, personal items, social activities, study cost without tuition fees and transport) for a single, full-time degree student:

for 1 month: between € 850 and € 1,150
for 7 months: between € 5,990 and € 8,000
for a whole academic year: between €10,260 and € 13,590

Accommodation averages per month

Sint-Katelijne-Waver: € 367 - € 516
Geel: € 290 - € 430
Mechelen: € 386 - € 545
Antwerp: € 445 - € 503

The amounts mentioned above are the average rental prices of a standard student room with common kitchen and sanitary facilities. If you seek for a room which include kitchen and bathroom for yourself, you will have to pay more each month. The sooner you start your search for a room (we recommend at the end of April), the more options you have in finding what you want. Bear in mind that the cheapest rooms are taken very quickly. Allow an average € 30 - € 60 per month for utilities, depending on the type of student home.

The overview gives you the average rental prices at the private rental market. Take into account increased rent, due to rising energy costs and possible extra index adjustments.

Additional study costs

Books and study material
These are not included in the tuition fee and will need to be purchased seperately upon arrival. 

Laptops and software
A laptop is essential for your studies. You will need to access the digital learning environment, follow online lessons, prepare exercises… This is why we advise you to have a good laptop and software before the start of your new academic year. 
Once you are enrolled, you will get access to the software platform of Academic Software. Here you will not only find all kinds of useful software tools you can use for your degree programme, but you will also get technical phone support during the installation and usage of the software. All students get access to this platform and the platform costs € 30.

You may need to make additional provision for costs such as a student visa, international travel to and from your study location and internships. Please contact your postgraduate programme manager for more information.
